Picturing the 1955 Philadelphia Phillies, this is one of the six team cards in the 1956 Topps set (out of sixteen total) that comes in three variations: dated 1955, team name centered, and team name left-justified. The dated cards are considered most desirable, followed by the team name left, then team name centered. Like all team cards in the set, the back offers a brief team history, team records, and the dimensions of their ballpark. Picturing Hall of Famers Richie Ashburn and Robin Roberts as part of the '55 Philadelphia squad, this is a desirable card that is quite difficult to obtain.
